Product Description:

Long before Mary Shelley wrote her famous story of Dr. Frankenstein and his monster, a real-life mad scientist called Johann Konrad Dipple dabbled in similar grave-robbing and reanimation. This History Channel special uncovers Dipple's eager experiments with fresh corpses, as well as his attempts to concoct life-giving potions.

Description by New Video Group:

The fascinating story of Johann Konrad Dipple, a brilliant scientist caught up in the dark world of alchemy and body snatching. This is the true tale of the original mad scientist, born in 1673, in the famous gothic Frankenstein Castle that overlooked Germany's Rhine Valley. His pioneering work would lead to electric shock therapy used in modern medicine. It was at Frankenstein Castle that Dipple would carry out his search to brew a secret elixir of life. He began to dig up fresh corpses from the nearby Nieder-Beerbach cemetery and dragged them to his laboratory in Castle Frankenstein to test out his formulas. Ironically, it was his potions that finally killed him.
